Description Plant Care  Videos Q & A Suggested Sundries Description
Ginkgo biloba 'Horizontalis' - as the name of this plants suggests, the habit of this Ginkgo is remarkably flat growing, and although it may be trained upright initially, in time this plant will resemble a huge umbrella. It is marvellous in pots where it quickly assumes a strikingly shaped plant. Also looks stunning planted near a low wall or on a rockery where the cascading branches can tumble over for dramatic effect.

If branches are caned upright as they grow a wonderful layered effect can be created.

Plant Care

All forms of Ginkgo biloba are extremely hardy and tolerant of a wide range of conditions.  If planting in the ground we recommend using good planting compost with root grow and keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged for the first 6 months.  Thereafter an annual top dressing with a good fertilizer is beneficial but not essential.  Pruning is not necessary except when shaping is required and this should take place in the dormant period.  

If planting in a container, use ericaceous compost mixed with 10% John Innes no. 3 added and feed through the growing period with a good general fertiliser - we use organic seaweed extract.  If possible, try to avoid the pot freezing for prolonged periods in the winter months.  Re-pot every 2-3 years into the next sized container.
